The Oceans of the World
In this section you will find trips to islands such as Maldives and Mauritius as well as some of the Cruises we have been on.
This is where it starts to get a little technical.
The site is built on a content management system, CMS, using Joomla. Joomla is moving forward and version 3.10.?? is being discontinued. Future developments are for version 4.??
Similarly, PHP 7 is being replaced with PHP 8.
Part of the migration is relatively simple, I have already changed to a new template which works on the new platforms.
However, some of the helper applications, which work within Joomla are not yet ready.
Fabrik is one of those applications, if fact a significant 'Joomla Custom Website Application Builder'.
I decided to give the site a bit of a refresh over Easter 2021 and install a new template and some additional functions. One of the things I didn't like about the old site was the delay in text appearing which probably meant some people left before the content appeared. This has been corrected now.
